[PATCH v17 7/9] bpf: Add __bpf_prog_run() to objtool whitelist

From: Josh Poimboeuf
Date: Wed Feb 24 2016 - 11:39:34 EST

objtool reports the following false positive warnings:

objtool: kernel/bpf/core.o: __bpf_prog_run()+0x5c: sibling call from callable instruction with changed frame pointer
objtool: kernel/bpf/core.o: __bpf_prog_run()+0x60: function has unreachable instruction
objtool: kernel/bpf/core.o: __bpf_prog_run()+0x64: function has unreachable instruction

It's confused by the following dynamic jump instruction in

jmp *(%r12,%rax,8)

which corresponds to the following line in the C code:

goto *jumptable[insn->code];

There's no way for objtool to deterministically find all possible
branch targets for a dynamic jump, so it can't verify this code.

In this case the jumps all stay within the function, and there's nothing
unusual going on related to the stack, so we can whitelist the function.
